crow’s nest…

crow's nest

after reading
an advert for
pre-arranged funerals
aunt bea
said
when
i die
i’ve decided
to delay
my ascension
that’s
an assumption
on my part
but
i want
to hang around
and watch
those
suddenly concerned
distant relatives
cry at my funeral
with tears
dredged
from their
deepest fears
of having been
left out
of my will
then
casually
watching them
fight over
a few
meaningless
and
quite worthless
possessions
not listed
to anyone
in particular
as an inheritance
something
which i did
on purpose
thinking
it would
prove to be
quite
entertaining
from
a
celestial view

  1. I am with Aunt Bea on this, how funny would it be to peek in and listen to everyone. So much more meaning in seeing the person before they die.
